Industry-based sectors have more to offer potential investors

Date: 26 Aug, 2015

Fiji has other industry-based sectors such as Agriculture, Manufacturing, Fisheries, Education, Mining and Quarrying, Financial Intermediation and Real Estate that have unlimited potential areas for growth, says Investment Fiji Chief Executive Officer, Mr Godo Müller-Teut.

He encouraged the Australian delegates currently attending the 4th Investment Exploratory Seminar led by Fiji’s Consulate General’s Office in Sydney, Australia to tap into these areas for development.

“The Fijian Government has facilitated a business friendly environment through low tax levels and a number of highly attractive incentives,” Mr Müller-Teut said.

At the same time, the CEO also extended an invitation to former Fijians living not only in Australia but all over the world, as well as new potential investors, to return home and take up the opportunity to utilize their experiences, knowledge and skills to start or develop businesses in Fiji.

Meanwhile the 16-member delegation arrived into Fiji on Sunday, 23 August 2015 for the two-day meeting at Novotel Suva.

Fiji Consulate General’s Office in Sydney Business Development Officer, Ms Onorina Fugawai said the exploratory mission would provide Australian businesses insight on the opportunities Fiji has to offer.

“The programme will have useful and practical information for prospective investors and business people looking to trade with Fiji,” Ms Fugawai said.

“Pacific Trade and Invest is joining the delegation and is represented by Chand Morris; Sydney-based Investment and Tourism Manager. Pacific Trade and Invest is sponsoring the networking functioning at the Grand Pacific Hotel. The guest includes local business chambers, guest presenters, South Pacific Tourism Organisation, Austrade Fiji and the Australian High Commission.”

Ms Fugawai said at least one third of each delegation from Australia have set in Fiji through exploratory missions such as these. The meeting ends today (26.8.15).
